Navy boats and ships, as well as non-combatant craft. John McClendon, President and CEO of SeaArk Marine, commented, "I am very proud of our team for securing this work. NAVSEA and SeaArk have worked extremely well together in the past and this contract represents a healthy backlog for us for the next 18 months".
